FIFA 21 returns to No.1 | UK Boxed Charts

Cyberpunk 2077 and Ghost of Tsushima both re-enter the charts

Last week was quiet at UK games retail, with FIFA 21 claiming the top spot of the charts despite a slight 2% decrease in sales.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons had to settle for No.2 after a week at the top, with its sales dipping 17% week-on-week.

The Nintendo Switch once again had a solid presence in the Top Ten, with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury climbing one spot week-on-week to No.3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe taking No.4, the Switch edition of Minecraft remaining steady at No.5, and Monster Hunter Rise charting at No.7.

There were no new entries in the charts this week, but a couple of AAA games re-entered the listings following retailer promotions.

Cyberpunk 2077 saw a 264% rise in sales week-on-week, entering the Top 40 directly at No.9. The PS4 version was slightly ahead, with 57% of the Cyberpunk copies sold last week going to Sony's console, versus 43% for Xbox One.

Meanwhile, Ghost of Tsushima enjoyed a 534% jump in sales, reentering the charts at No.11.

Here is the GfK Top Ten for the week ending April 17th:
